I just bought a giant turquoise bull head and hung it in our dining room! All 4 of us (husband, 2 babies and I) are born under the Taurus astrological sign. I started calling “The Bull” our family mascot. Lots of friends and family have commented on him, no one has complimented me on him but I love him and he is part of our family :) The babies kiss him and say, “Night night blue bull” as part of our bedtime routine :)

I treasure it :)

(please note, I am not suggesting the events are even close to being the same, but if you look at the grand scheme of things and the overall message, kids can draw similarities.) All that to say, I love Horton and I love his messages! :)
